Any ideas for protein packed veggies?



Recommended Posts

So, I've been having a bit of a struggle lately getting all my Protein in and I'm really bored of eating the same things day after day. What I've been craving is vegetables, especially zucchini and brussel sprouts! Great for low calories but not so much on the protein. Since we are so limited to meal size, I'm trying to make ever bite as protein packed as possible. I'm back to eating regular foods, no restrictions so I'm looking for some good ideas and/or recipes.

Anyone have any great ideas how to "protein up" some veggies? :)

Edamame is an excellent source of Protein and I love how delicious they are. I like to roast them personally but they are great warm, cold, or added to certain dishes.

Zucchini boats(hollow with a spoon)stuff with ricotta cheese and spices of choice- roast in oven. Pasta Sauce for dipping.

You could make zucchini noodles (love me some zoodles!) and add any Protein you'd like, ground turkey, cheese crumbles, other veggies. And it's like having pasta!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
